I had a look at that mount. Do you buy the bracket, or did you make it yourself?

Thanks Eckart, I have some nice footage of diving with the cow sharks, in one frame you can see cow sharks, red steenbras, roman, stump and hottentot. I will try my hand at video editing later

Just past Cape Boat, there is a sign saying no spearing. If you swim straight out to the edge of the kelp and look from there you will be amazed at the fish life. Here are a few pics I took the last time I dived there.

Will definitely do that, it is best to wait for the water to clean up a bit so you can get some nice footage. I you come Simon's Town way and are keen for a dive give me a shout 0727601767.

Went for a dive just off pappiesbank. Managed to find a few shoals of small galjoen, but nothing size. The water was 14 degrees and very strong. Resorted to scratching for a few sinkers. Took some video, but very poor quality because of the surge... will upload it later today.

The first 1 was 70mb and the 2nd was 30, I tried to make them as small as possible, but still viewable.
